If you enjoy watching sexy guys engaging in sword fighting, romancing women, cracking a few jokes and battling the enemy - and all of it set within 17th century France - then this is the show for you..

It's a series of stand-alone episodes but with a long-term story arc developing in the background, which finally comes together by the series final. It's not a drama that has complex storylines or anti-heroes and it doesn't stick faithfully to the original book source, which may annoy purists - though all the main characters are present - it's just a 'lighter' drama for those who want to watch something different to the almost constant dark and gritty crime dramas that are common today. It does have a modern twist, with issues such as slavery and women's rights coming up in two episodes and even Constance is a bit of a modern girl at the side of many previous and dull incarnations of the character - and this time she's married, as the books author originally intended.

The four main characters are well cast and distinctive from one another in a realistic fashion, from young D'artagnan ( Luke Pasqualino does a good job of bringing warmth and humour but also a little darkness to a character who's often the dullest of the main characters or too boyish for some viewers to take seriously. At 23 years of age, he still makes a young, immature and cocky D'artagnan but one with hints of the handsome man and great Musketeer he will become ) to brooding Athos to ladies-man Aramis ( though he has dark aspects to his character as well, crucial to a character who could so easily be 2 dimensional ) to a Porthas who's clearly Porthas but not as cliché or OTT as previous incarnations, making him just as handsome as the other three musketeers.

I brought the series during a sale on Prime.
the trailers looked good, and I was very impressed when I watched the series.
An excellent cast, and a good re-imaging of the Musketeers.

To me, Atlantis was a 'meh' BBC show, failing to live up to the standards of Merlin, Doctor Who and Robin Hood. However, I was very interested in the new 'Musketeers' series advertised- and on a Sunday 9'o clock slot. The first episode converted me- the plot was great, the characters interesting and I am a staunch supporter. As the series continues, the characters are developing and getting an episode each- now making it hard to choose a favourite! The casting is excellent, Capaldi is getting some screen time before he takes up the role of the Doctor, and the other Musketeers are well-portrayed. The writing is both funny and gripping, and the show really shines.

I will be sad when the series ends, but I hope series 2 will live up to the (so far) high standards of the first. It's great to watch and I advise buying this as soon as it is released!

This is a wonderful production - carefully and effectively filmed so that it looks the real thing. I can almost smell the filth of the streets of Paris or the Court of Miracles. The casting is excellent - the different characters and back stories of the 4 musketeers beautifully exploited by the different actors and Peter Capaldi's Cardinal Richelieu takes me back to my A-Level history studies. I know it's not entirely historically accurate, but somehow that doesn't matter as it is so well done. The dialogue is fast, witty and very funny and I like the use of 'modern' language. I laugh out loud and there are not many occasions where TV does that for me. Sunday evenings are great and I can't wait to get the DVD and watch the episodes all over again. Well done BBC.

I feel this product is okay.

Although, I have now got the Musketeers Series 1 and 2 DVD boxset which is far better because I mean, it has more extra content,
the design is new and I received it for my 20th birthday recently.

Bye for now.

after the version from the '70, which i loved since being allowed to watch TV, I announce this version as my new favourite!
can't wait until the DVD is out, is already on my wish list,
loved Michael York's d'Artagnan then and love Tom Burke's Athos now, broody, troubled and dangerous, I'm already in love, only 4 parts in, can't wait for more,,,easy watching and enjoyable

the series is not strictly following the novel, the writers just added some stories, So, just imagine it as the in between adventures of what you know,
The main characters are all there, with some twists and more depth,
After the first 2 parts, which are mainly the introduction of the characters, the story is unfolded bit by bit. The thick of the plot is of course in the finale, and as this is not in the novel you would guess for a while, although for my taste the suspension could have lasted until after the "funeral", why they revealed it long before is a mystery to me, nevertheless it kept thrilling to the "show down" where the Musketeers prevail yet again another evil by Milady and safe the damsel in distress with a lot of shooting,
I hope they will produce season 2 soon and that the waiting for it won't be too long
